I personally like the humor in Torture Garden. The sardonic fun loving nature of it very much typifies Zorn's unique outlook. While Zorn is very much giving homage to the hardcore style, he's obviously mocking the hell out of the super serious macho attitude of it.

I mean, take a look at this photo of Naked City on wiki:

Doesn't look like a group of people who would take writing "I'm a badass, and I'm going to kick your ass" music seriously.
Terence Hill, as recently confirmed during an interview to an Italian TV talk-show, was offered the role but rejected it because he considered it "too violent". Dustin Hoffman and John Travolta declined the role for the same reason. When Al Pacino was considered for the role of John Rambo, he turned it down when his request that Rambo be more of a madman was rejected.
Al Pacino = God
